Samsung Galaxy Note 4 leaks with QHD display and 4GB of RAM

IFA is just around the corner, and the leaks are flowing thick and fast. Yesterday we heard news of Sony’s SmartWatch 3, and today it’s the Samsung Galaxy Note 4‘s turn in the spotlight.

Indonesian site Erafone has posted what it claims is the device’s spec list. If it’s on the money, fans of big phones won’t be disappointed – the Note 4 is said to have a 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel Super AMOLED screen, plus a meaty 4GB of RAM.

That amount of RAM would be a first for an Android device, while the QHD display would be on a par with the LG G3. Though because it’s slightly bigger than the G3, the ppi will be a tad lower – 515ppi, compared to 538ppi on the G3.

Inside, we’re looking at two different processors, which suggests different models will be available for varying markets. 

Samsung has launched different versions of previous handsets like the Galaxy S5 in different markets, so this is nothing new.

Also on board is a 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation and a dual-LED flash.

Storage-wise, we’re looking at 16GB, 32GB or 64GB options, though they can each be beefed up with a microSD card up to 128GB.

Unsurprisingly, the Note 4 is pegged to run Android KitKat, which is the latest version of Google’s OS.

This would be the first Galaxy Note that doesn’t have a bigger screen than its predecessor. Though with the higher resolution, we can forgive that.
